Dez Bryant on Brandon Weeden: he was doing some great things out in Cleveland


The Dallas Cowboys brought over Brandon Weeden in the offseason in order to backup Tony Romo. Weeden had one of his old college buddies starring at wide receiver for the Cowboys, Dez Bryant, and Bryant feels that Weeden is doing a great hob on the field right now.

Here is what Bryant said about Weeden via Dallas Morning News:

“He’s been doing an outstanding job since he got here,” Bryant said. “In my honest opinion, I feel like he was doing some great things out in Cleveland.”

Bryant just contradicted his whole statement after saying he did some great things with Cleveland. Just ask the Cleveland faithful about the great things that he did for the team? Do underhanded throws going for interceptions count as great?! Maybe for the opposing teams.

Weeden is doing great things like he did in Cleveland, which means he could be doing nothing at all. At least it is more work than Kyle Orton is doing.

    Weeden is the worst possible choice for Romo’s number two. Oops! Forgot about Hanie. Big Jones has rounded up all the worst QB’s in the league and brought them all to Dallas. Just because they’re cheap doesn’t mean they’re worth it.

    He was the best at holding on to the ball 2 seconds longer than he was supposed to.

    Weeden is a “right kind of guy” fit for this team. He has some athletic talent obviously but one has to wonder how much coaching and real prep he received in Cleveland. He was basically wolf bait from Day One, so saying he is a horrible QB is a bit of a leap at this point, imo. Give him some reps in practice, slow the game down for him and let him watch 3 very intelligent (Callahan, Linehan and Coach G) coordinators call the games so he can see how the offense is supposed to run.

    People have unrealistic expectations these days. It makes them sound stupid. Yes, he’s a project. Yes, he made some poor decisions in Cleveland. But, for crying out loud, it’s the Browns. Some of you armchair geniuses need to put your out-dated jock-straps in check before you put your mouths in motion.
